We need a soccer complex. Something on the level of Phoenix's Reach 11. The facility would be a major boost to Mesa's economy - drawing major, national tournaments.

I want us to bring the Arizona Challenger Space Center (which is looking for a new home) here in Mesa.
Placing the Arizona Challenger Space Center would bring people into our city. Parents and teachers would bring students to the center. While here to see the center, they will use the services of nearby restaurants and stores and stimulate our local economy. It will also help to upgrade our appeal to both educated people and young people with a science attraction. Additionally, bringing people into the city will expose them to a lot of the nice developments we already have to offer, especially in the west and Central Mesa--the MAC, the Planetarium at MCC, bike lanes and multiple use paths, the Asian shopping and dining corridor, etc. Simply getting people into the area will make them more likely to come back. And if you plan it well, the Challenger Space Center could be placed on one of the giant blighted lots in this town that now only serve as eyesores.
Here is a link to the article about them needing a new home. A couple of other cities are already being considered. Why not put our city into the running? www.arizonahighways.com/blog/a...

Hi Linda, could you give us a bit more information about your vertical tower garden and the proposed application within the City? Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to properly dispose of household hazardous waste! The number of residents attending the City’s four annual events has grown every year so we are very excited to announce the City is investing in a permanent Household Hazardous waste Facility. The Facility will be open 4 days a week, including Saturdays! And, it will be located at the same location we hold the 2 west-side events - 2412 N Center, just north of the 202. We are breaking ground in September and plan to open the new Facility October of 2018.

This will be fabulous. I've got a few year's worth of batteries ready to go because I can never make the occassional events!

I'm really happy to hear this news! I take advantage of the household hazardous waste events often, but sometimes it's hard to store the items for the one day each quarter the event occurs. And then, when the event happens on a really busy Saturday or when we're out of town, I have to wait even longer for the next one to roll around. So, thank you for making this happen. What a great way to help clean up the environment and our community!

We want to let everyone know that because of this idea and its supporters, the City has begun internal discussions on how to find a way to honor our police and firefighters. We plan to post and update here in the Fall.

Here is some more information on the program: the cost is $150, as Nycole stated below, and the banners are displayed in Downtown Mesa on Center Street during the weeks approaching and following the Veterans Day and Memorial Day holidays. After they are displayed during one year, the family is given their loved one’s banner as a keepsake. The program is currently only for active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces, veterans who were honorably discharged or killed in the line of duty. They must also be or have been either permanent residents or have a family member residing in Mesa. For more information see our website www.mesaaz.gov/residents/diver...

I love the idea of more splash pads at our parks in Mesa. They are the perfect way to keep kids entertained and cool in the summer (or the the spring and fall). I love that they are a safe way to play in water and that they are free to use. Parents can get wet too or just hang out watching their kids. Splash pads turn an ordinary park into a water attraction.

We combined Victoria Geczi's idea for urban gardening with this one since they overlapped (including Me Too votes). Here's Victoria's comment:

There are a few empty lots in Mesa that are just barren areas. Many cities currently have small lots built to grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers. Neighbors help maintain and grow the small plots. They can rent a plot and buy what they would like to grow and harvest. Other members can help weed, water, and provide other maintenance to the lot. This has a great opportunity to bring our neighborhoods and town together.
